If trees can be used as masts or towers, what about using them as guy
anchors? Has anyone had any experience with doing that? Jerry K3BZ

The BEST time to install screw-in anchors is after
a good soaking rain :-)   Rocks are a bummer.
If the anchor is only partially in the ground, it may
be necessary to try remove it and try a slightly
different location.
